houstonsweetcorn :  I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. I can relate – I was disagnosed with a Grade 3 Glioma last March at 29 years old. (Originally, they told me I had GBM but after further testing they found it to be a high-grade anaplastic astrocytoma).

You are 100% right on not googling or looking at statistics. That was one of the first things my oncologist told me – not to look at the stats for brain cancer because stats encompass everyone – including people who refuse treatment.

Brain cancer is such an awful disease and GBM is a beast. I pray that all of the promising new research in CAR T-Cell Therapy advances ASAP so that your husband can be treated. Stay strong and keep enjoying your family!!
